PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- Charlotte County Sheriff's detectives arrested a Port Charlotte man Wednesday after his fingerprints left at a home burglary matched prints on file from previous arrests. Tyler Ray Kerry, 20, of 175 Palmetto Circle, was booked into the Charlotte County Jail for the 15thtime with 25 records. He was charged with Burglary and Grand Theft.
The victim, who had been out of town April 9 through July 21, discovered his house broken into at 211 Palmetto Circle. Stolen were two televisions and various power tools valued at $1,140. CCSO Crime Scene technicians collected various items for evidence included latent prints on a windowpane.
The fingerprints positively identified Kerry, who lives a few houses away from where the burglary took place. Detectives contacted Kerry who has been in the Charlotte County Jail since June 24 for Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon for a June 20 stabbing at 810 Palmetto Drive in Port Charlotte. Kerry refused to make a statement on his latest charges; he remains in jail on no bond.
